Skullphone’s latest exhibition “Digital Media” opens this weekend. Known for his forays into the realm of digital media and ultra visible installations in public spaces, the upcoming exhibition embodies Skullphone’s “playfulness, obsession, irony and anxiety”. The exhibition runs from June 5th till July 2nd at Subliminal Projects.

Digital Media, the new solo exhibition by Skullphone, brings the playfulness, obsession, irony and anxiety of the Los Angeles-based artists’s renowned street installations into the Subliminal Projects gallery space. In Digital Media, Skullphone examines the contradictions inherent in outdoor digital signage, demonstrating cause for both wonder and concern over the increasingly ubiquitous medium. The artist explores advertising, government and private enterprise signage, and the California landscape on which outdoor media proliferate, making permanent on panels what is removable and reprogrammable in outdoor space.

Although of the same spirit as his past work, Digital MediaI think marks a distinct visual departure for the artist. His use of mirror-polished, black-painted aluminum panels is a cold and slick leap from past works on found wood, weathered metal, and wheat-pasted paper. Skullphone’s painting technique employs a deliberate dot grid system, and his painted color is expanded to a limited palette of red, green and blue. This shift corresponds to the artist’s recent inspirations and exploits with outdoor digital media. Through painted pointillism, the imagery dislocates as the artwork is approached.
